A positive, force-free and personalized approach through empathy, art and science.
Tina’s daily goal is to generate an awareness that each dog has their own individual personality. Every dog is unique and and every human is unique so it is essential that each dog-human relationship be rooted and developed in a balance of clear communication, trust and understanding. Tina focuses on both the dog and the human(s) to cultivate a personalized and WHolistic Ayurveda-based way to living a natural life with dogs in a human society.
Ayurveda is a 5000-year-old wellness philosophy and living practice rooted in the idea that all beings are created of different combinations of energies or the Five Elements – Air, Space, Fire, Water and Earth. The living practice of Ayurveda seeks to treat each Being’s unique body, mind, and spirit using a comprehensive WHolistic approach. This approach emphasizes nutrition, herbal remedies, movement and stillness to maintain a natural balance. Tina has organized this approach by identifying a dog’s Individual MindBody Type and creating a Personalized Natural Living Plan to establish or regain an overall balanced, healthy and natural way of living.
